It’s been a crazy week in Hyeres, as shown by our posts thus far. We put up two great races (1,7) today in some lighter conditions and in silver fleet. We did not sail the third and fourth races. Trevor has been dealing with a shoulder injury since last September, and it has flared up a bit in the past month or so. We are taking the necessary steps now to make certain that he will be in top shape for the Olympics.
Today, that meant not going back out after being sent in to race in two more races in more wind. Tomorrow Trevor will be flying home to get treatment. We are confident that we have laid out a solid plan to address his issue, and we will come out ready to race for Sail for Gold in June and again for the Olympics. As we’ve said all spring, there is only one regatta this year. It’s the Olympics. We will do everything in our power to be ready for that.
My schedule is still in the works. I may still get to do the Worlds to get some tiller time and keep my mind fresh with racing scenarios. More on that will come tomorrow.
Finally, the other big news that we are very happy to share is that our own sponsor, Sperry Top-Sider has signed on as the title sponsor of the US Sailing Team. We were happy to notch a race win in our first race as US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider athletes today! This is a brilliant partnership, and we are thrilled to be a part of it.
Thanks to US Sailing Team Sperry Top-Sider, especially title sponsor Sperry Top-Sider and Gold Partners Atlantis WeatherGear and Rolex. Also, thanks to all of our supporters.
